today. gender, lgbt, poverty. it is my hope that will be among the lasting legacies of an obama presidency. >> wonderful. thank you. we have about 30 minutes for questions and answers. please speak into the microphone. >> thank you for speaking. my question is about crossing the aisle. i know we want our politicians to be doing that and i want to hear your thoughts on how we do that ourselves. this campaign, i am young so i do not know how it has been in the past, but it has been frustrating not being able to connect with republicans and conservatives, especially family members. i feel like if we want our politicians to do it, we have to know how to do it ourselves. key to that is sympathy and respect. i have a hard time being empathetic towards people who are homophobic and sexist, etc. i am wondering your thoughts on that and how we did that on an individual level if we hope for that to happen on the national level. >> that's a good question. >> it is risky. just have to take the risk to have personal conversations. for me, i believe that stepping out and talking to people who
. thank you for taking my call. they are saying president obama did not know. but eric cantor knew ahead of time and he didn't tell anybody. maybe the president did not know about this. shouldn't eric cantor have told congress about this? guest: i do not know how much he was told. a national security issue involving petraeus and no more details. he went back to the fbi about it. it is not necessarily his job to investigate allegations like that. usa" writes's work -- guest: it is important for any cover-up to be exposed. there was a potential for compromise and that is something that should be brought out. in the old days, before there was oversight, there were all kinds of terrible abuses going on. the press did not reveal these things. the fbi under j. edgar hoover was blackmailing members of .ongress, illegal wiretapping the cia was giving lsd to some other employees. the cia was doing foolish things to try to get castro's beard to fall off. you end up filing the law and people's constitutional rights but you also lose focus. that is what we saw in many cases. when the congress start
love being right. i was saying that obama was going to win by a landslide. he did. thank you for that. >> stephanie: even news busters were dispirited. usually they say mean things about me. but they only said that obama didn't win by a landslide. >> caller: it was a killing and bush won by less than that, and they said that was a mandate. that was a huge win. and obama beat that score to death. i really thought that the election was over and that was such a landslide that it would break the craziness fever. it's like they're building a case to work against president obama already. and we haven't even got out of november. they're talking about petraeus and what his bringings are and they're talking about seceding from the union and healthcare. >> stephanie: and they're at least providing comedy. julie brown has done another victoria jackson video, her reaction. >> we posted that on the facebook page. check it out. it's awesome. >> stephanie: i love these things five days later. all this mascara. i'm still crying, america is dying. [ laughing ] now that immigration--what do you call it
.5% of the vote. you can make all kinds of criticisms of mitt romney, but barack obama is not exactly the second coming of franklin dell nor roosevelt either. he is a candidate that doesn't say thank you to people who vote for him. the president has built a stronger coalition, and the republican coalition has been in trouble for a long, long time. republicans look at elections like 2010 and 1994 where a third of the election for ate is over one state. and then they are surprised where they don't win when 16% of the election for ate is over age 65. >> what about the argument you will hear, which is romney was not a consistent conservative. had he been a consistent conservative throughout his political career and had had not flip-flopped to conservatism recently, we would have run our test with a solid conservative candidate, and you can't make the argument against conservative republicanism if romney was the standard bearer of that, because he was such a false standard bearer. >> i voted for mitt romney, and i like moderate mitt from massachusetts, and i am perhaps the last person with something
for childhood arrivals. thanks to president obama's new policy, carlos will finally be able to use his bachelor's and master's degrees in computer engineering. he had to wait seven years after his master's degree, but the day has finally come and he'll get his chance. as soon as he received the notification, he twoepbt a -- went to a career fair, handed out resumes to high tech companies that tried to hire him years ago. the letter he wrote to me, it was the best news of my life. i would be able to work as a software engineer or own a business and create jobs. according to recent polls, the american people clearly support the administration's new dream act policy. for example, a bloomberg poll found that 64% of likely voters including 66% of independents support the policy. only 30% oppose. the american people understand it takes, makes no sense to deport these talented young people. they grew up in america. they can make this a better nation. as america learns more about the dreamers in our midst like carlos march taoepbz, we're -- martinez, support will build for passing the dream act and com
been reelected and there won't be any more real elections? for the many problems that president obama is facing both internally and externally, to what extent does his in ministration be committed to either immigration, policy reform, [inaudible] which are to the big issues with latinos. >> thank you. one last one? what i have a try at these two, and i'm sure my colleagues will want to jump in. first of all, i would say two things and i know peter will want to talk about brazil. i am always struck by how important immigration is for the whole region. i remember when president bush went to uruguay and the president of third way, vÁzquez, and there were two issues that he talked about on the agenda. one was trade and the other was immigration. one does not think immigration would be a central concern for uruguay, but i'm struck by how important it is not only for mexico, central america, the caribbean, but for a lot of south america, even a country like uruguay. frankly, if there were serious immigration reform, that would provide a very helpful for broader cooperation with much of sou
